Complete dentures are worn by patients who require support for a full set of porcelain or plastic false teeth. They are generally made of plastic, and they are often colored in order to mimic live gum tissue. Complete dentures are held in the mouth either traditionally by forming a seal with the gums, or alternatively by attaching to dental implants that have been surgically embedded into the jawbone.
When it comes to complete dentures there are two primary types. The first is the conventional type of complete dentures. The teeth that are being replaced are first removed, and the gums are allowed to heal completely. During this waiting period the new dentures are being manufactured to custom fit the patient's mouth. This type of denture is usually ready for placement anywhere from 8-12 weeks after the removal process. The Immediate type of complete dentures, on the other hand, are ready for placement immediately after teeth removal. They are almost always made in advance until a set of long term conventional dentures can be produced.
Partial dentures are used when some of the natural teeth still remain in the upper or lower jaw. A bridge is first used to replace one or more teeth. The traditional, more permanent design of partial dentures is made of metal clasps and rests that conform around the natural teeth. The more temporary design uses plastic replacements. This procedure allows time for gums and bones to heal properly before a permanent solution is reached.
There are a few different types of partial denture bridges. Removable partial dentures are normally connected by metal framework or clasps, and they can be taken completely out of the mouth. In contrast, fixed partial dentures are required to be cemented in place and are not removable. A third type, precision partial dentures, are another removable option. However, these dentures use internal attachments rather than clasps, yielding a more natural appearance.
Dr. Farless is so nice and he's very gentle. He stopped several times just to ask me if I was okay. I used to hate to go to the dentist. Now, it's not so bad.
